Some of these great places are pricey and are not usually on your list for family outings if you are struggling financially. Luckily, if you have a Pennsylvania Access or EBT card you can get some great discounts and enjoy these great assets that this city has to offer. Below I have listed a few of the discounts you can get. Visitors must present their Pennsylvania ACCESS or EBT Card and matching photo ID to receive the discount for all. These apply to adults and children over 2. Under 2 are free with card. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Its not much but when you are down and need a break, at least you can take your children to a place, that they can have fun and learn. Who knows maybe you will learn something too.
Have a great day! – Carol
